Brief Answer: Hello! Detailed Answer: You do not need to worry because lunesta is a treatment for insomnia or"sleeping pill" and is non-benzodiazepine. You can take it even if the Heart rate is at 60's. The most common side effects of eszopiclone are headache, drowsiness, dry mouth, dizziness, unpleasant taste, stomach upset, and loss of coordination and do not interfere with propanolol. But you should know that patients taking lunesta may become dependent on the drug for sleep and experience withdrawal symptoms when the drug is discontinued. Take care of your self
